Lunar Eclipse Early Tuesday 14 Apr 14

A total lunar eclipse will be visible in Minnesota early Tuesday morning. It happens when the moon passes through the Earth’s shadow and virtually disappears for 78 minutes, and will begin at 2:06am. If it’s a clear night the moon will likely appear red or orange from light around the edges of the Earth hitting the moon’s surface. And it’ll be easy to see, requiring no special equipment. The last lunar eclipse was in December 2010, and this will be an unusual year for such activity; four eclipses will occur, two lunar and two solar.
